Weekly Round-Up

Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget if you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

Terri Wingham, the founder of A Fresh Chapter, looks back on the spark of an idea that formed the wonderful organization she spearheads today.  If you’re not familiar with AFC, then please do check it out. Its mission is to help people make sense of the complex emotions of cancer and give them the tools, support, and community to thrive – even in the midst of challenging circumstances.

A poignant question from Megsie – will there ever come a time when she can reveal herself completely without the fear of being hurt in the process?

Rod pushes for a more inclusive protocol in screening for breast cancer to include men at high risk of developing the disease.

Please join me in sending healing thoughts Abigail’s way as she recovers from her latest surgery.

Sarah writes this week about treatment choices. 

Kristie shares more about her recent trip to Sedona. 

Barbara shares thoughts on the role of spirituality for breast cancer patients. 

A post from Sheri on creating more impact in our lives.

Dr Beverly Zavaleta shares tips on maintaining your mental health during chemotherapy.

Finally this week, I’m reeling from the news that Julia Barnickle, a warm and steady voice in our online community has died. Connie has written a tribute to Julia on her blog, and I am sure many of you also have lovely memories of her too, particularly those of you who were involved with her Lessons From Lockdown book project “What if life were meant to be easy?

I’m going to close with a quote from Julia – a fitting tribute to someone who lived life creatively bravely, and deeply soulfully.

Until next week,

Yours with much love always,

Marie xxx
